Also you’re  going to want to transfer from Coinbase to a 3rd party wallet like Blockchain then to the book.  Transferring from the exchange direct to sportsbook can get your account shut down 

also make sure to check for a signup bonus, you’ll probably get 100% bonus on first time bitcoin deposit

i know some guys are using Gemini instead of Coinbase as well not sure if you can do direct exchange or not with that

Okay, I just opened up a Blockchain wallet and now have the ability to buy $750 worth of Bitcoin with Coinbase.  Question:  Once I have Bitcoin in Coinbase, how do I get it over to my Blockchain Wallet? 


Thanks!

Bitcoin bought.  It says it's in my BTC Wallet.  Can I use that to fund Bovada or do I need ANOTHER wallet?  So much questions.  So confuse.

step 1: Buy BTC at coinbase

step 2: Send BTC to your Blockchain wallet

step 3: fund sportsbook with transfer from Blockchain address

step 4: profit?

 

coinbase apparently frowns on sending money to sportsbooks so I've heard they may lock your account if you do it directly from them. But you also can't buy BTC directly from Blockchain, so that's why both are needed here. It's pretty easy to send from one to the other though.

Uh oh...

I did use my BTC Wallet to send the money.  It gave me an anonymous address to use.  :oldunsure:

coinbase or blockchain?

I think I've sent from coinbase before with no issues. Just seems there are people out there who have had that end badly for them so it's best to avoid when possible.

Hey guys, I'm doing a fundraiser for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.  Going to climb a mountain a day August 31-September 9.  If you're Facebook friends with me, you'll see a post and link and I am happy if any of you can donate.  If we're not FB friends and you're interested, let me know and I send you a link by PM.  I don't want to post here due to the weirdos.  Always the weirdos.  Anyway, thanks!

In pertinent part:

 

I'll be climbing in memory of my grandmother, who took her own life at the age of 69.  She was funny and whip-smart and, outside of my parents, the best friend I ever had.  I'm also climbing with my thoughts in particular on several dear friends who have lost a child to suicide.

When I lost my Grandma, people at her funeral asked us if she had been sick.  The correct answer, of course, was that she had been sick with depression for dozens of years.  But we didn't say that.  People don't talk openly about depression, as they do about those suffering from any other illness.  This is part of what AFSP is trying to change and what I hope my fundraising will enable.  AFSP's "Out of the Darkness" walks are meant to force a conversation that most of us don't openly have about depression, mental illness, and suicide.

I'm meeting with my tax accountant Wednesday.  Every time I do I feel like I'm meeting with a parole officer or something.   

 At least this year I can pay a pretty good chunk of my taxes.   Someday I'll get caught up--I don't think I've paid my taxes in full in the tax year they were due since 2011.  Maybe after those tax breaks I keep hearing about.

May come as a surprise (or not, since I've been pretty open about my love of Bolivian marching powder), but I don't really smoke weed.  Don't get me wrong--I started smoking it when I was 9, I think I was high every day from 14-28, and selling it paid my college tuition.  I have nothing against weed.  But I stopped before law school and revisit it just every blue moon.

Washington legalizes it and suddenly, it's everywhere--in public, in your face.   Every once in a while I smoke it.   The problem is this:  "WHAT THE #### DID I JUST SMOKE?"

When I was younger (so much younger than today), I knew what I was getting.  You're passing around a joint at a concert, you aren't dipping into your stash of your buddy's third generation bubble gum from Mendocino.   It's something cheap.  It's mellow.  It's good for a show.  You probably rolled it in the parking lot with a paper you bummed from a stranger.

Now, you go to a show and there are pre-rolleds being passed up and down the row at all times.   Eventually, it seems like a good idea to play Russian roulette and take a couple hits.  Suddenly thanks, Friday night at Pearl Jam.  It was nice knowing you.   What the hell?  Who needs to be that high?   That's not a concert high.   That's ####### go out into Joshua Tree and try to figure out how to levitate high.   

But Immortality was insane.

Now get off my lawn.

Lol

We went to the first PJ show at Wrigley. 2014 maybe? Some soccer mom sat down in front of us and pulled out a baggie. She started passing it around. They played 3 songs and then the skies opened up for 2.5 hours or so. My buddy passed out from her smoke for the entirety of the delay. Slept through the whole deluge while we were all partying around him. I tried to get him to go down onto the field with me. Wouldn't budge. But as soon as Eddie grabbed the mic again, he was suddenly lucid and yelling his head off. It was good stuff. Or so I'm told. :oldunsure:

Yea.  Stuff these days is WAY different than what was being passed around when I was in school.

Our toaster was dirty, so I threw it away and am Amazon looking for a new one.  The most highly rated ones are >$200, including one that's almost $400.  For a toaster.  Who the hell spends $400 on a toaster?  For toast.  Probably the same people who use mayonnaise to make grilled cheese.  :loco:

I guess that $400 one was for poor people, as it turns out.  Just came across a $500 one.

Yeah, I'm targeting like $50 here.  I threw out our old one about three months ago and we have been toaster-free since then, so it's not a hot item for us.

I don't even particularly like mayo, but it sure crisps up a grilled cheese nicely.

Not sure your thoughts on toaster ovens, but I bought this bad boy at Target on clearance for $5.  It's been awesome and worth the full price.

Breville makes a nice toaster oven.
